Reba cancelled after six seasons

Reba has been cancelled after six seasons. The final two episodes will screen in February in the US.

In the first half-hour of the finale, Cheyenne (JoAnna Garcia) and Van (Steve Howey) confirm Reba’s (Reba McEntire) worst nightmare – that she is becoming their own version of Barbra Jean (Melissa Peterman), dropping by their new house unannounced.

When Barbra Jean has a meltdown in the middle of her weather report, Brock (Christopher Rich) interprets her emotions as a sign that she isn’t ready to give up on their marriage.

In the second half-hour of the finale, Van accidentally starts a fire at his and Cheyenne’s new house, forcing them to temporarily move back in with Reba. Realizing they may not be ready for such a big responsibility, they ask Reba if they can stay with her, but she surprises everyone by turning them down.

Barbra Jean seriously considers accepting a job offer from a station in Arkansas, so it’s left to Reba to get her to turn down the offer and stay with her family where she belongs. Scarlett Pomers and Mitch Holleman also star.

    Unbelievable. I loved Reba. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read that they cancelled the precious show. It shows a poor call on their decision.

  • joy

    I actually just got hooked on Reba and its just terrible that it got canceled!!! The show was different, edgy and funny at the same time. It was one the “realist” shows I have ever watched. It grasped a totally different kind of reality of family. The characters worked well with each other. Where is our popular culture gone to??? Now, TV is just filled with ridiculous “reality” shows. Don’t get me wrong, I have watched some reality shows, but its just too many of them, that we need T.V series like Reba to install back the morality within our culture.

  • Van

    Thanks for the support guys, will see you all soon!

  • Lindsey

    I cannot believe this!!! Why!!!! How can they cancel this funny/ realistic show? I hope the CW puts those &thheaven people out of jobs soon!!! I’m tired of them… They all creep me out!!! I will fight for Reba!!!

    I can’t believe this. Reba honestly drew me and my mom closer. We’d get in big fights, and then towards the end of the day we’d watch Reba together and we would get over everything. Whenever I come home from school, the one thing I look forward to is watching old episodes of Reba with my mom. I really wish they wouldn’t have made the idiotic decision. Because now all we kids have to watch these days are stupid, pointless, waste of money shows that encourage us to make our lives the same way. Reba inspired me that life isn’t as bad as it seems. People are probably reading this saying, “A show inspiried her?!” but yes, I honestly LOVED this show to death. I can’t wait till my dad buys me seasons 1-4 on DVD for my birthday.

    Everyone in my family LOVES this show. It’s the only show we all watch together and totally laugh. We managed to find it playing on various channels all the way from 4:00 until 7:00 at night. This is such a wonderful, talented cast with a storyline that hits close to reality for MANY Americans. CW is so stupid!

    I just got into Reba like in March.I saw the very ending
    of the finale and could tell that it was over.It got me

    (KND)that just ended but no Reba ended with 6 seasons too.
    I am now looking for the 6 seasons on dvd.Reba will live on
    forever in our hearts.

    great run.
